* How you begin your day decides what the rest of the day will be like. If you sleep in, and wake up late, you are unlikely to lose weight. An adult human being needs not more than 7-8 hours of sleep every night. Anything more than that is considered to be oversleeping, and anything less than that is considered unhealthy, too. Improper sleep hours can in fact make you gain more weight, so you need to be cautious.

* Some people, when they wake up late, skip breakfast. This is a big no-no. Skipping meals is a mistake, especially breakfasts, because it can make you feel cranky and tired for the rest of the day, and then make you overeat, because you may feel excessively hungry.
